A desirable overdrive-equipped model, this MGB roadster was originally registered 'DDD 469T' on 2nd February 1979. Its first keeper's name is not known but on 30th March 1980 the car passed to the second, Michael Law. On 3rd October 1981 the last (third) owner purchased the MGB, which had suffered accident damage to the passenger's side. A new wing and door were fitted and the colour changed from original Glacier White to Damask Red, the original 'deckchair' patterned seating material being changed to black leather at the same time. The 'B' returned to the road on 6th August 1982 and was used as a second car for the owner's wife to drive.
A quantity of MoT certificates on file shows the recorded mileage rising from 5,234 in August 1982 to 32,155 (the current odometer reading) in January 2013. During this time the car was laid up in heated storage for two periods: January 1987 to August 1992 and October 1999 to 2012, on the latter occasion because of the owner's wife's deteriorating health. In 2012 it was decided to sell the MGB, which was re-commissioned and reregistered 'HWR 951T' in February 2013. There are copies of bills on file totalling £1,000 for parts used in the re-commissioning.
'HWR 951T' is described as in generally good condition, benefiting from a chassis Ziebart rust-proofed from new and Waxoyled regularly since then. The carpets, engine mounts and clutch are new and the engine, which has been fitted with AccuSpark ignition, is said to start and run well, registering good oil pressure. The overdrive works as it should. Well cared for and used sparingly for the last 30-plus years, the car is offered with aforementioned expired MoTs, a quantity of old tax discs and SORNs, old-style logbook, MoT to January 2014 and Swansea V5 registration document.
